People are seriously injured or killed everyday due to improperly designed or manufactured products. When a product enters the marketplace, you have a right to expect that it will not cause harm if used properly. The truth is, many products have had little or no safety testing, and those hidden dangers are a threat to unknowing consumers.
Product liability cases are inherently complex and expensive as they involve engineering, science, design, human factors and manufacturing issues. Our attorneys have successfully tried product liability cases in state and federal courts throughout South Carolina. While South Carolina’s product liability law is rapidly changing, our state’s laws provide consumers protection from defective or unreasonable dangerous products and recourse against the designers, manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers who design, build and distribute defective products.
The lawyers at PMPED have successfully navigated an array of consumer products cases involving defective space heaters, exercise equipment, dog collars, ATVs, and stocking carts used by employees at big box stores.
We have represented clients in catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims due to defectively designed or manufactured automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, tires, tire rims, airbags, seatbelts, ATVs, boats, corn and cotton pickers, tractors and numerous other products.
